Post 808_Yaris with retrofit projectors

Since brian and peterpoop did the DIY for these projectors, I'll post the pics. I'd like to thank Garm at Microimage for bringing in awesome products! The only problem I had was the alignment for the headlights-When I had the locking nut for the projector in...the headlight cutoff was off. The locking nut was removed and replaced with a rubber washer. I then eyeballed the cutoffs for the headlights by shining them at a wall. I'm guessing that I had this problem because my car is an 09 ***One tip with baking the headlights, put wood under the headlight so you won't melt the housing*** On to the pics!














Picture Update 2/1/10-Audi Style Led Lights: It was hard for me to take a clear shot of my headlight because of the leds' brightness. Enjoy




Picture Update 2/23/10-Audi Style Led Lights: Here's a clear picture of the lights.



UPDATE 7/8/10-More pics

horizontal level was off when i put everything on correctly...instead of using the locking washer(i think that what you call it, it's a ring with three prongs that's supposed to lock the headlights into place), i bought a rubber washer at home depot (size is inch and a half) and used that in place of the locking washer. From there, i guided the projectors so the cutoff was level, and tied everything up.

Curious if you had the same issue as Peter with the projector not fitting in the hole and having to dremel it out a bit....

I plan on doing this relatively soon

Yes i had the same issue as peter. I dremeled the hole out enough to fit the projectors. I'm guessing this goes for all liftbacks, sedans shouldn't be a problem. good luck with your retrofit!

Nice projectors if only one day I will be brave enough. But I'm suprised you didn't paint the housing black around the headlight.

possible future sale, but not right now. I only have one set left in stock by the way.

Yes, this should fit into any car that uses an H4 bulb. (note that some cars, like the liftback but not the sedan, need to have the hole opened a little)
